"After a nasty Twitter back-and-forth with President Trump on Sunday morning, Senate Foreign Relations Chair Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), told the N.Y. Times' Jonathan Martin that Trump's ‘reality show’ could set the nation ‘on the path to World War III.’
Corker's key quote: ‘[Trump]; concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.’
Why it matters: A Republican close to the White House told Axios' Mike Allen: ‘These comments now shape the criticism of the President going forward. Corker's comments will be the catalyst for all the doubts about Trump's fitness ... [H];e has sown the strands of doubt about Trump into a vivid tapestry.’” Axios
The question is why would one of the symbols of stability in the United States Senate raise these issues? As Americans, we should be concerned.
Republicans in Congress should be just as concerned.
We are reaching historic levels of instability.
"WASHINGTON — Senator Bob Corker, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, charged in an interview on Sunday that President Trump was treating his office like 'a reality show,' with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.
In an extraordinary rebuke of a president of his own party, Mr. Corker said he was alarmed about a president who acts 'like he’s doing ‘The Apprentice’ or something.'
'He concerns me,' Mr. Corker added. 'He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.'” The New York Times
Mr. Corker, we are concerned with Mr. Trump's inability to lead and his inability to do his job. You are correct, we are in an episode of "The Apprentice."
We are living a nightmare of chaos and instability.
"WASHINGTON — For nearly nine months, Senate Republicans have watched their new president with a mix of aggravation and alarm. But it took Senator Bob Corker to take those concerns public and confront President Trump with his most serious challenge from within his own party.
In unloading on Mr. Trump, Mr. Corker, a two-term senator from Tennessee, said in public what many of his Republican colleagues say in private — that the president is dangerously erratic and unstable, that he treats his high post like a television show and that he is reckless enough to stumble the country into a nuclear war."
